The Greatest Human Artifact?

A recent poster on this /. thread used this line in her/his reply, and it struck me…

“I think an argument can be made that the Internet is the greatest single artifact ever created by humankind.”

If we (humankind) were wiped off the planet and our “artifacts” found later by a future intelligent race (alien presumably), would they think our beloved Internet was our best creation? If not, what would it be? I know this question assumes a lot, but work with me here.

Does anybody feel like commenting?
